Wasikowska, Abbott To Get A “Piercing”

Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Christopher Abbott (“James White”) have reportedly wrapped production on Nicolas Pesce’s psychological thriller “Piercing” based on Ryu Murakami’s 1994 novel of the same name.

Abbott plays a man who kisses his wife and baby goodbye, seemingly headed away on business, with a plan to check into a hotel, call an escort service and kill an unsuspecting prostitute.

His plan is thwarted by the alluring and mysterious call girl (Wasikowska) who arrives at his room which leads to a pulsating game of cat-and-mouse.

Laia Costa, Maria Dizzia, Wendell Pierce and Marin Ireland co-star while Josh Mond, Jacob Wasserman, Antonio Campos & Schuyler Weiss will produce.
